Clive Christian has a reputation for offering a traditional high end style of kitchen, in particular the world renowned aged patina paint finish and 23 carat gold gilded luxury finish.
The patina finish is achieved using an oil based glaze and requires a protective final coat of water based Polyvine varnish.
Gilded finishes require a high level of skill using specialist materials and are protected with a sealant.
